    You Bet

    Nothing better than writing a song, getting it together with a band and playing it live, or better still hearing it on the radio (yes it has happened quite a few times) ... or best still seeing it on TV (a couple of times) .. like a childhood dream come true ..

    Turned Two

    Its been a while since I've turned more than one song in a month. I've turned two thus far this month. They're not complicated pieces by any means, but they are what I like to call thinking pieces. Some what simple music (ok, a few small tricks between the meter of the lyrics...

    I have only written music

    for 7 months. I am a young musician, and I love music dearly. I sing and play acoustic guitar. Although I am told so many things, by so many different people. Like, "Get a job!" or, "Find something productive to do." I never understood this town, or the people in it. I get told...

    Gone To Insanity

    V1 There is a time for those tears, Moments to collide with the knife, But tonight let me show you the world, The world of insanity, V2 Twisted corners with the jagged screams, Dancing horrors from the nightmares within, Every step I take causes the voices to cry in pain, No more...

    My Own Song Got Stuck In My Head....

    I'm so used to constantly having other musician's works stuck in my head. Well I recently started writing again and within a few days, I've only written about 5 songs. One of them, this one line, keeps going over and over in my head. It's just weird, though. Usually when I have a...

    "My Cup Runneth Over"

    This song came to me in a very odd way. I woke up one morning singing the chorus and as I laid there, I thought to myself, "I've never heard this song before!" but some of the words sound familiar. I woke up singing, 'My cup is filled up it runneth over, my cup is filled up it...

    First Song

    I'd greatly appreciate any feedback you have on this song. I wrote it about my lying cheating ex. I trusted you, I let you in, That's when all the pain begins. I knew you were lying, but I refused to believe you'd betray me. Had I known who you were then, I'd be far better off...

    "Lord Save My Children"

    As I was growing up, many times I would sit in a nearby room and listen to my mother pray. Sometimes she would pray for over 2 hours naming all twelve of her children and I would patiently wait to hear my name and hope she would pray for me. My eyes would tear up and I felt so...

    Struggling Songwriter.

    I've written over 100 songs. My true dream is to connect with some producers who want to collaborate with me and make a song, and I'd hire singers. The bad part is I live in a small town and don't know any singers. I've tried reaching out to people on Craigslist, to no avail...

    The Songs I Write Are expressions of My Feelings

    The songs I write show my emotions.  When I can't say anything I write it all down and put in musical notes to accompany it.  It helps so much.

    "Build On The Rock"

    This song is the title of my CD I recorded about 15 years ago. It's about the wise man that built his house on the rock and the foolish man that built his house on the sand. When writing this song as so many of the songs I've written before I don't mean literally but rather...

    Farther From My Heart

    Well most of my songs are intended to be closer to the genre of the fray (pop-rock and speak to a deeper level of emotion than most)...this next one I can envision as more of a country song (like one of Taylor Swift's more upbeat songs where she kind of sing/talks. Let me know...
